  • Music:

Forty-One Questions

Shamelessly stolen from cadhla and lysana....

What is your music preference?

I like just about anything that's done well, but form-wise I prefer anything with a punchline or anything of the "so bad it's good" genre.

What are your favorite neurotic behaviors?

Intensity and compulsive cleaning.

What are your favorite foods?

Pasta, garlic, coffee, chocolate, and just about anything spicy.

What are your fetishes? Where did you get them, etcetera?

I adore dogs or just about anything canine. I don't know where I got it, but dogs come from breeders and the humane society.

Where did you grow up?

Age 0-6 yrs, 11 mos -- Levittown, PA. I spent much of it at "Sun 'N' Fun Nursery School and Day Camp."
Age 6 yrs, 11 mos-16.5 yrs -- Willingboro, NJ, aka NJ's "Levittown"
Age 16.5-18 -- Westampton, NJ (neighborhood was nicknamed "Snob Hill")
Age 18-20 -- Hempstead, NY (Lawn-GUY-land)
Age 20-21 -- New York, NY (upper west side)
Age 22-present -- Mountain View, CA (Silicon Valley)

If anyone asks me what my exit was, I reply, "5."

Where were you born?

Lower Bucks County Hospital, Bristol, PA

What is your sign?

Astrological: Cancer

Can you cook?

Yes -- fairly well.

What is your favorite kind of animal?

Bichon Frise.

Do you wear glasses or contacts?

I have prescription sunglasses and regular glasses, but I only need the prescription for looking at distances. I am legally able to drive without them (my vision is something like 20/25), so I rarely wear them.

Do you drive? If so what?

Yes. I drive a 1992 Honda Accord EX (got that model for the anti-lock braking).

Do you know how to share?


What is (are) your favorite color(s)?

Ice-blue, burgundy/maroon, white.

Do you like kids?

Baby goats are cool. meant that kind of "kid." It depends upon the individual child. I am neither biased towards nor against children in general. Instead, I treat each child I meet as an individual and judge them accordingly.

Do you have kids?

No (unless you count Lady).

What is your relationship status?

I wish my longtime beau, Warren, would propose already!!!

Are you a student?

I'm not currently receiving any formal instruction, but I am perpetually learning.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Host and executive producer of my own TV show.

Do you read for pleasure?


Are you computer literate?

Very. I've been using computers since before some of my friends were born.

Are you a Geek?


Do you know what 'hit any key to continue' means?


What are your hobbies?

Music, food, broadcasting, woodworking, science fiction, recreational rhetoric.

Do you still play with Legos?

I didn't have a set when I was a child, but when exposed to them as an adult, yes.

What was your family life like growing up?

A sitcom -- sort of a cross between "The Jeffersons," "Married With Children," "Seinfeld," "The Simpsons," and "Malcolm in the Middle," but far more ethnic than any of them.

Are you allergic to anything?

Ultra-short version: mushrooms, penicillin, sulfa drugs, codeine, cucumbers, bell peppers, string beans/green beans, assorted molds, plants, and pollens.

The full list runs about seven or eight pages -- and that's only what I've been tested on.

What is the first thing you do in the morning?

Depends upon the day and what I have on my agenda.

Do you drink?


Do you do drugs?

Only when the doctor prescribes them.

Have you ever taken the purity test?


Who is you favorite Beatle?

George or Paul.

Have you ever gone stage diving?

No way.

Have you ever gone skinny dipping?


What is you political party affiliation?

I'd prefer not to say because I'm a member of the press.

Do you mind if I crash on your couch?

It depends upon who you are and when you want to stay.

Are you going to eat that?

Heck, no! That's for the dog!

Is that your real hair color?


Which do you like more, giving or receiving?

Giving, because you you can afford to give more when you already have what you need.

Who is your favorite Stooge?

Moe or Shemp.

What is your favorite flower?

I'm not sure of that one; I'm still finding out what I'm not allergic to.

Do you prefer being alone or with other people?

That depends upon my mood and who the "other people" are.

What's the answer?
